This year’s Met Gala celebrated the opening of “China: Through the Looking Glass.” The exhibition, which is curated by Andrew Bolton, with artistic direction by filmmaker Wong Kar Wai, alongside fashion historians, takes a look at how Chinese art, and film have influenced American fashion.

As in previous years, stars hit the red carpet in a diverse range of looks, some Chinese-inspired, other’s not so much. There was also a noticeable presence of Chinese models, and actresses.

The standout look of the night was Rihanna, one of the few people who wore a Chinese designer.
